  1. Thank you, guys! That's very helpful indeed. I'll keep in touch if I have more questions, if you don't mind... :)
  2. Hello there, I'm not using X-Plane yet, so I cannot test it on my rig for the app that I'm working on now. But can you guys please explain: 1. Is there a default flight plans location in X-Plane (like a single folder for FSX flight plans in C:\Users\{username}\Documents\Flight Simulator X Files)? 2. I've read somewhere that X-Plane can store flight plans made with FMC in aircraft-specific folders. Is this true? If so, it means that the possibilities are endless depending on different aircraft equipped with FMC. In this case default location will be enough to know for now. Thank you!
  3. Indeed, I have a relatively old rig with Win7 64-bit and FSXA onboard but I didn't expect that aircraft development has advanced so much... It's not my intention to set up a discussion here comparing your work with the aircraft of other well-known developers out there but hey, 7-8 FPS just on the first launch at an empty Texan airport just to test the birdie (no 3rd party objects, traffic, real-time weather etc.) means just no way for the Beaver for me... Alas! :( Even the aircraft with complex systems and VC coupled with 3rd-party addon sceneries and real-time weather that I often fly in FSX are not as resource hungry as the Beaver... And given the age of my machine, my normal FPS indicator rarely drops below 28-29 FPS which is quite OK for me. My specs in case anyone is interested: ASUS Rampage II Gene -|- Intel Core i7 920 @ 3.0GHz -|- HP 23" LED Display -|- NVIDIA Geforce GTX285 @ 1.0Gb -|- Creative SB X-Fi Gamer -|- 8.0Gb OCZ DDR3 RAM -|- Western Digital WD10EADS 1.0Tb HDD @ 7,200rpm -|- Seagate Barracuda 2Tb xHDD @ 7,200rpm -|- Windows 7 SP1 x64 Ultimate -|- FSX Acceleration -|- Saitek X52 Pro -|- TrackIR 5 Pro Anyone with the same problem? Any advice except "change your rig" (I know that anyway but am not ready to do this now)? Thanks!

    Yet another video explaining the start-up procedure from a real Russian pilot (Aviabars Flying School). I've added captions in English. Enjoy!
  5. Thank you, Alex! Not necessary anymore :) After some trial and error, it worked... finally! That's what I did, in case somebody has a similar issue: 1. Restarted my wifi-router and the "flying" computer. Took a note of a new IP from the Network and Sharing Center (Windows 7). 2. Launched FSX on "flying" computer. 3. Launched NavConnect on the same computer. Double checked that the IP I have and the one shown in NavConnect window is the same and one. 4. Launched LittleNavmap on the remote computer; then Main Menu -> Tools -> Flight Simulator Connection and selected options as described in the manual. 5. Inserted new IP address into Flight Simulator Connection of LN launched on the remote computer. That's it! Thanks again for your great assistance and LN, of course!!! Please keep it up!
  6. That's correct! After installing LN on both flying and remote computers and after LN completed the database creation on flying computer, I just moved the folder C:\Users\...\AppData\Roaming\ABarthel\little_navmap_db to the remote computer replacing the 'empty' SQLite files. I also checked that LN on remote computer correctly reads database files, i.e. shows airports/navaids, etc. Yes. And inserted IP address of the local computer leaving port number (51968) untouched. It is. Actually, with LN running on both computers, I laucnhed NavConnect on the local (flying) one to make sure that IP address inserted in Main Menu -> Tools -> Flight Simulator Connection of the remote one is correct. Basically following your instructions here. Also, I added littlenavconnect.exe and littlenavmap.exe on both computers to the firewall exception list of my antivirus. I don't remember the error message but it was number (7) I guess. But I can check if you still need it. The other thing is LN on remote is trying to connect to the local one using NavConnect for XPlane. I guess it's because I don't have any sim on the remote and NavConnect is instructed to use XP as default option for the sim. Thanks for trying to help!!!
  7. Hi Alex, Sorry if this has been asked before but is it somehow possible to run LN on a separate computer using it as a 'moving map'? If yes, how can I achieve that? My FSX is running on a desktop computer while I suppose I can run LN as a moving map through a Wi-Fi connection / Simconnect to desktop? EDIT: I try the procedure as explained in the manual to no avail yet. Is it required to have the same simulator (FSX) on BOTH computers - local and remote? The thing is I don't have FSX on a remote computer, only the database files taken from the local one (with FSX). But the NavConnect message on remote comp says it's trying to connect to XPlane (?) by default although IP address is provided correctly. Thanks!
  8. Hi Alex, Indeed, they both show up in LN but I'm not sure about FSX, need to check. But after reading your reply and Jon's (ADE developer) explanation on duplicate navaids, I'm more than convinced that there is no other way in FSX to modify this behavior... until I shift to P3D and get advantage of their new Exclude Property. Further investigation revealed that the scenery developers do not necessarily need to include navaids such as VORs and NDBs into their AFCAD files (my case) unless these navaids are wrongly positioned or have updated frequencies since the release of FSX. Or the last resort is to modify stock airport files or delete the duplicate navaid from the addon scenery. Period. Thanks!
  9. Bingo! Thank you, Alex! It worked OK after I installed the pre-release version above without excluding scenery folders.
  10. I have exactly the same problem but using LNv144 on FSXA. It's never happened with previous versions of LN and with the same scenery addons. Sorry I can't send you my log file as I don't know where it's located on my rig but can do that later, if required. So far I've tried to reduce the number of chars in folder names but it didn't help. But then I reverted the scenery folder name back since I had the same folder name with previous version of LN, so I don't think this is a problem associated with long folder names. Here is the pic with error message:
  11. I've never had any problem with LN database updates but recently, after installing Baku X by Drzewiecki Design, which in addition to Baku (UBBB) contains all other airports of Azerbaijan, and updating the database I can see double navaids at UBBN (NAX) and even an extra airstrip at UBBL (UB10) (see the images below) even though Baku X is on top of my scenery library (above all other sceneries) and I do NOT have "Read inactive scenery entries" checked in LN. I didn't have time to check other airports but these two. Now I wonder why LN depicts the airports this way? PS: I use the latest version of LN, which is v1.4.3 (revision 449cfa5). Any help is highly appreciated!

    Ed, WingZ, and all the rest, I really enjoyed every page of this thread about my home airport, Baku... I wonder how come I missed checking it for so long... Thank you all for your valuable comments and shares!!! All the best from UBBB "still Bina" Airport!!!
  13. Hi Alex, I don't use X-Plane but I thought this may come in handy for your particular purpose: X-Plane flight plan (FMS) specification

    VERY Bad Reviews so far on Steam

    Sounds quite logical to me...
  15. Great achievement, Alex! Congratulations!!! Been waiting for the new release... :) Is it already possible to integrate LN with Navdata database? It will be cool to update the airways as well... Just asking, no problem if not...
